It takes money to make history.
"We are in the process of putting together naming opportunities for corporate sponsors," said Thomas Ryan, managing director of the museum, which he said will be modeled on the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., and will likely be built in either that city, San Francisco, Los Angeles, or New York. "For $1 million to $10 million you'll be able to get a gallery within the museum."
Ryan, who has already raised more than $1 million in cash and pledges toward the museum's goal, said Absolut, Peet's Coffee and Tea, and West Hollywood, Calif.'s The Standard hotel are among the companies being approached about sponsorship opportunities.
